Jay-Z picked the wrong day to kick off the Made In America festival on Saturday in Philadelphia, well, for me at least. Yesterday’s schedule was filled with attending Sneakers x Speakers here in Nashville, then watching college football until feeling stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey and followed by several long, loud rounds of Tonk with the family.
My shortcomings as a member of new media caught up with me as people were sending me texts all day, mentioning “I’m in Philly” and “I just watched Jay Elec” perform but none of it registered to me that all these things were connected. F*ck it though, it was Saturday and that’s the blogger’s sabbath, the day in which the keyboard goes untouched.
Anyway, Yardie comes through in the clutch with performance clips from Jigga and friends, G.O.O.D., MMG, State Prop (no Beans) the aforementioned Jay Electronica and more. Over on his site, there are a few others, including Janelle and D’Angelo’s sets, so props to him for saving the day.
